5.0 out of 5 stars The best game of the series?, 28 Nov. 2000
This review is from: Resident Evil - CODE: Veronica (Dreamcast) (Video Game)
Anyone who has played any of the Resident Evil series, from the original gore fest of the mansion lab, through the RPD station and the sewers, up until the destruction of Racoon City and the seeming end to the T- and G-virus', will know how great these games are. Everything that was there from these games, the graphics, the gameplay, the suspense, and best of all, the zombies, has been flawlessly ported over to the Dreamcast, with not a single mistake. The story again centers around Claire Redfield, and her brother Chris. As Claire, for the first half of the game, you must escape the prison she's been put in, solving riddles and picking up more clues as to the story of the new T-Veronica virus. The latter part of the game involves Chris landing on the island fortress, and searching for his sister. The way in which you search through the aftermath of what happened after Claire left is brilliant, you think you know where you are but then are thrown off completely by something different. From the unbelievable opening FMV (the best FMV ever??) through the dark and dingy tunnels and rooms, to the shattering climax with the ultimate creation, you won't be able to put this game down until you've finished. At first I clocked up around 8 hours gameplay, then 5 hours, then 4, so there's loads to do. As for the supporting cast, well it's amazing. From the lonesome Steve, through the psycho Alfred, up to Alexia herself and one of Chris' worst enemies from previous times, they all play their part to develop more of the story, which was missing from the Nemesis game. As for the main two, well now you can see what Chris looks like in true 128-bit glory, and as for Claire, well she's never looked so attractive. Again, the acting will never win any Academy Awards, but hey, it's got to be better than the infamous "hold your fire, I'm a human!" from Resident Evil 2. To summarise, this game is one of the very best on offer for the Dreamcast, for any platform actually, and whereas it has some flaws, as all games do, it's still worth £30 of anyone's money...
